Beauty: Be transported by Jo Malone's new scents
Fragrance has an alchemical ability to alter mood: to soothe, to energise, to empower. Take Jo Malone London’s Lost in Wonder collection, launching this month. Introducing two new scents - light and lovely Fig & Lotus Flower and rich, seductive Cypress & Grapevine - both are utterly transporting.
Inspired by Babylon’s Hanging Gardens, Lost in Wonder offers a timely moment of escapism. Say the Jo Malone team, it takes the wearer to “a place of fabled beauty lovingly created by a gallant king for his wistful queen. . . flush with water-splashed flowers and ripe fruits, trailing vines and statuesque trees”.
Designed to be either worn alone or layered, both new fragrances are beauties. Fig & Lotus Flower is a fresh floral at first spritz, a subtle fruit sweetness emerging as it mellows on the skin, while Cypress & Grapevine, delivered in Cologne Intense form, is bigger and bolder, with evergreen top notes and amber base.
Fig & Lotus Flower Cologne, from £50 for 30ml, and Cypress & Grapevine Cologne Intense, from £82 for 50ml, at Jo Malone London, Rose Crescent, Cambridge and jomalone.co.uk
